Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Edina
Southwest Twin Cities Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Coalition includes the cities of Edina, Hopkins, Minnetonka and St. Louis Park. Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is a comprehensive program that creates awareness for the purpose of connecting service members and their families with community support.
Southwest Twin Cities Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is a group of community volunteers coming together to try to build a cooperative of communities who qualify as Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Communities.
Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is the statewide organization that provides community support for military servicemembers, guard, reserves, veterans and their families. For instance, when a servicemember is deployed, Beyond the Yellow Ribbon provides community support by connecting the deployed servicemember’s family with sources for medical care, mental health counseling, tutoring and counseling for children in school, financial counseling and household chores such as lawn mowing, raking, snow shoveling, shopping, or just a cup of coffee and a visit, and much more. While deployed, the military servicemember’s main concern is often his or her family. Beyond the Yellow Ribbon provides the network of support that allows the servicemember to focus on the job at hand by helping the family to maintain a quality of life that is as normal possible.
